• Conservatives are poor winners • What would Jesus do

Conservatives are poor winners

Janet Eisenbach (TGI Forum, Oct. 17) doesn’t sound too happy. Despite all the “winning” Trump and his administration are doing, I notice that some people feel the urge to berate and moralize to others who are exercising their right to lodge political protest.

I can’t help but laugh at claims of gracious losing and civility while Barack Obama was president; anyone can look up those eight years of well-documented anti-Obama vitriol.

H.L. Mencken once said, “As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

Is it possible for some people to be sore winners?

What would Jesus do

The rise of the anti-Christian movement in America. How do you know if the person you are talking to or reading about is an anti-Christian? If they say or do the opposite of what Jesus taught, they are anti-Christians.

Jesus fed the hungry, if you want to take away food stamps, you might be an anti-Christian. Jesus did not speak out against different ethnicities, be all people are equal children of God, if you are racist, you might be an anti-Christian.

Jesus healed the sick, he did not want them turned away to suffer, so if you want to take away doctors from the sick, then you might be an anti-Christian.

Jesus told us that the wealthy are unlikely to go to heaven, so 800 years later an anti-Christian made up a fake story about a gate that never existed to lead people away from God.

Jesus warned us many times about hypocrites, even Satan disguised himself as an angel of light. At the end of the day, the hypocrites know who they are.
